Can't see embryos, but she sure is fat . . . however, it doesn't quite look "gravid" fat to me.

Are you positive it's an adult?

Those may be embryos, but I'm not convinced.

Are we talking about the white sections in the soft membrane? I can never see embryos????


Does anyone have a pic of any scorpion which distinctly shows the embryos through the membrane?

Those are all seperate scorpions and the last one is a different specie.

C.Elegans and a C.Griseus

I noticed adult makes if centruroides genus almost never eat once they've mated and stay skinnnnny

The females on the other hand eat like there's no tomorrow.

If they're separate scorpions, the first one looks the most convincingly gravid, but the flash has washed out any detail.

With the third one I'm not convinced that those are embryos and not just guts.

Scorpions with high communal tolerance are the ones I've kept together.
Pandins imperator with heterometrus spinifer
Centruroides Vittatus with C.Sculpturus
Centruroides Chiapanensis and C.Elegans

Are the one I've kept
